The Listening Program® continues to help people with traumatic brain injuries. We are very grateful to Mary Pat Correro, a Certified Provider of The Listening Program®, and Director of the Center for Learning Enhancement for sharing this inspiring report.
SK was a sophomore in high school, an outstanding student with a 3.8 GPA, as well as a member of her high school swim team. She had a very bright future ahead of her until one afternoon her school bus was involved in a traffic accident while she was a passenger. She suffered a concussion and a traumatic brain injury as a result of the accident, which changed everything for her immediate future.
During the following year she suffered a variety of symptoms, which drastically limited her ability to attend school, or to do many of the things that she loved to do. She had to deal with migraines that were sometimes so intense they required her hospitalization. She was also placed on several medications to help with her other symptoms but experienced little improvement.
At the end of that year, her mother brought her to see Mrs. Correro, who set SK up with a 12 month protocol of The Listening Program. SK began listening for 30 minutes a day, using the Waves Bone Conduction Audio System.
She made some dramatic improvements within the first month, and even discontinued her migraine medication. She was also able to begin extending her school day, and her mother reported that she was seeing improvements every week! By her senior year she was once again taking advanced placement courses and had returned to the swim team.
SK continued to grow and change during the year she listened. Thank you to SK, her mother and to Mary Pat Corerro who helped SK and shared this heartwarming report with us. She is a wonderful example of the resilience of our brains, and the growth that can occur through music listening therapy.
“She is attending her senior year full time, taking college prep and AP courses again, is earning good grades and once again participating on her high school swim team. She is off most medications, except for Adderall. Overall she is doing very well, and her mother has said she has “gotten my daughter back.”
